Department: Native American Studies

I am currently completing the manuscript, Domestic Subjects: Gender, Citizenship, and Law in Native American Literature, which focuses on legal discourses in the literary works of the following indigenous writers: E. Pauline Johnson, John Oskison, Mourning Dove, Alice Callahan, and D’Arcy McNickle. I am completing a short fiction collection called Beading Lesson and Other Stories, and continue to write translations of Ni:mi:pu: literary, liturgical, and historical texts. My second academic book project, funded in part by a grant from the Hellman Family Foundation, will focus on Nez Perce texts and translation.
